A Proustian anthropological lens

"Although taste and smell may be fragile, they endure; they remain like souls, remembering, waiting. hoping amid the ruins of the rest."

On a Proustian anthropological approach to its subject matter:  from the Irish Journal of Sociology, "The sensuous secrets of shelter" by Dr. Angela Maye-Banbury discussing her work on the BBC's Thinking Allowed.

Also a segment on Foie gras and the politics of taste.

A question for PS: What does it say of Anglo-Saxon & American cuisine/culture if there is no word for "bon appetit"?
